Colleagues and readers may be interested to know that I have published an article on using Blackboard’s External Links to quickly create a useful presence on Blackboard. I think that the tip will be particularly useful if the thing that’s preventing you migrating course materials to Blackboard is the effort needed to upload your documents and maintain them thereafter. I have a few other suggestions and short cuts that I’ve learned over the years and I hope to share these with you over the coming week and months. You’ll find the tip and the future tips in my new Swansea Blog blog @the.coalface. I look forward to your comments.
